Probably not a problem for anyone else (maybe JPR) but passing from Sagres to SuperBock, or vice-versa, is weird.

I had the same question - turns out those are the two dominant beer brands in Portugal:

https://www.portugalist.com/portuguese-beer/
Then there’s the fact that each sponsors different football teams: Sagres sponsors Benfica, Braga, Olhanense and Académica Coimbra, and the Portuguese football team. Super Bock sponsors Sporting CP, FC Porto, and Clube de Futebol Os Belenenses. Most people are likely to go with the brand that sponsors their team. - Portugalist

Yep. Spent the afternoon drinking Sagres went home and grabbed a Super Bock, my preferred brand, and tasted weird...

PS:
And regarding the article, there are now "beer festivals" on a bunch of cities, where Super Bock and Sagres cant come, its just for the artisanal beer brands.

Yeah I know the feeling, I try to always stick to the same brand if possible!

While we're not a traditional beer country, it's nice to see the evolution of the craft beer market - not long ago there was only half a dozen of mass-produced brands :|

My current (Portuguese) favourite is the Trindade Fénix, but I'll drink mostly anything really :mrgreen:
No sig due to budget cuts.

It was like this in Brazil, but when you develop a taste for good beer you tend to leave corn juice like Skol, Brahma and Antarctica behind. I spend months without drinking them, there are so many better brands now.

People in Japan are renting cars but not driving them
‘Traveled no distance’
...
According to Asahi Shimbun:
One respondent to the company’s survey said they rented vehicles to nap in or use for a workspace. Another person stored bags and other personal belongings in the rental car when nearby coin lockers were full.
In the aftermath of the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami, rental cars were also used to recharge cellphones.
”I rented a car to eat a boxed meal that I bought at a convenience store because I couldn’t find anywhere else to have lunch,” said a 31-year-old male company employee who lives in Saitama Prefecture, close to Tokyo.
“Usually the only place I can take a nap while visiting my clients is a cybercafe in front of the station, but renting a car to sleep in is just a few hundred yen (several dollars), almost the same as staying in the cybercafe.”
